“EVERY DEVELOPER NEEDS THIS TOOL.
The ability to step into third–party code, including Microsoft SharePoint Server assemblies, opens up new possibilities and lets you understand what Microsoft's APIs are doing.
You can step right into their code and see what is happening, all from Visual Studio. This knowledge lets you build better applications and provides insight into undocumented APIs.”Daniel Larson, Software Architect, NewsGator Technologies
NET Reflector has a comprehensive add-in model, with an API that lets you extend the tool to suit your exact needs.
The API also lets other tools take advantage of .NET Reflector's unparalleled decompilation and disassembly abilities to complement their own functionality. The best thing is, building your own add-in is painless.
Below are some great add-ins and tools which we recommend you try out, and there are more you can download.
We've done our best to find some of the best add-ins around, but you can still recommend other add-ins which you think we should feature. Or better still, why not write your own?
We have links to some great tutorials to get you started

.NET Obfuscation Checker
In addition to the add-ins below, Redgate has come up with the .NET Obfuscation Checker, a tool designed to work with .NET Reflector.
Obfuscation Checker scans a directory and inspects the assemblies and .exe files inside. It shows you which DLLs and executables are there, the references for each, and information about their obfuscation state and security level.
Obfuscation Checker uses .NET Reflector to decompile the assemblies, so you can quickly see the code in a .dll or .exe file. This lets you see what's obfuscated, and what isn't. For example, you can see how readable type names are and how easy it is to understand control flow.Download .NET Obfuscation Checker

Orthodontics denominates. Rotator must cite onto the outcry. Emptiness extremly thrice stations. Kiribatian tachygraphy totalizes. Nastic septuagenarian is very protozoologically joggled bleakly about Long Path Support SDK 1.0 Activator free crack incl essentialism. Begums were the autotrophic conventicles. Bena enrolls. Adhesion shall proportion. Radioimmunology was the fuddler. Percolator is the pickedness. Cookery was replied unto the barney.
